Sat at the bar with bartender Brian. Amazing service and the best BBQ shrimp! My husband and I can't stop talking about our experience at Mr. B's Bistro - first rate!

This restaurants reminds of some spots in Manhattan---great lighting, great servers, ambiance, food and drinks. The bar was beautiful. The best crab cake in the French Quarter. Also LOVED the fired oysters (I know, I know) and the red fish was grilled to perfection with the sauce on the side (appreciated after the fried oysters). Outstanding martini (triple olives) and the staff were gracious as can be. Very conveniently located in the French Quarter and an absolute delight. Prices were very reasonable for New Orleans top eateries.

This was my second visit to Mr B's, and this time it was for lunch. It was a classy and energetic atmosphere, and the servie was excellent. I had the gumbo and crab cakes..both were excellent. Definitely a go-to spot for a French Quarter visit.

Got there close to closing and had a quick delicious meal. It was clear that things were a little hurried to get closed up but we still enjoyed it. Would have thought fly in the wine would have warranted more than a replacement glass but we didn't press and enjoyed a delicious meal

Mr. B's was a nice place to enjoy Sunday brunch while it poured rain in NOLA. The jazz trio was quite good and the food is decent. My husband loved his softshell crab. My hash was good, not great. The setting is nice, but I think closer to the windows would be better. Try not to get stuck in the back too far if possible.
